Help!
Cooked Lipo?

So I forgot to take off my low voltage alarm and left it attached to one of my 3S 2200's for about 2 weeks. Should I just toss it or is there a way to recover a completely drained lipo?

It's nice and dead, toss it.
People will tell you that they can be recovered (and occasionally you can) but a LONG time dead....not good. There is permanent damage and the battery at best is compromised.

So much for a low voltage alarm, eh?

Yup, It's cooked.

Toss it.

I bet the low voltage alarm went off right up until it hit zero volts. Oh well.
